This plant roots incredibly easily and quickly from tip cuttings in water. One year I rooted 300 2" length tips in baby food jars of water. Yeah, I got carried away because they root so readily.

Salvia 'Anthony Parker' is a beautiful salvia.

This salvia got its name when Frances Parker of South Carolina discovered a chance hybrid seedling in her garden and named it for her grandson, Anthony.
